    Drosophyllum and Byblis seeds frozen - any hope?

    My main fridge broke down and I moved the seeds to bar fridge I have at home. Unfortunately, I placed the seeds too near the freezer compartment and found them in a "frosty" stage.

    Any of them being able to germinate after they have thawed?

    Seeds are extremely resilient. My fridge got down to 28F for a while after defrosting it and my Drosera meristocaulis and other tropical seed were still viable.

    It might depend on how you thaw them out. I just reset the fridge to around 36F where I try to keep it and left the seeds in the fridge.

    Only time will tell really.

    I forgot to update...

    There are two Drosophyllum seeds that germinated after being frozen. Their pics are here.
